A skier crosses the finishing line and cheers – he has won the race. He was able to perform well and reached the goal he has worked for. During the race he was in the moment and fully concentrated. His competitor is disappointed, he could not reach his personal best, he was nervous and distracted, too many disturbing thoughts had been running through his head before the race started – the pressure to perform was too high.

There are many examples like this in sports: winning and losing are tied together, only small things make the difference – in every second case our mind is the decisive factor in our success. This is the reason why many sports associations and athletes use mental training to enhance their performance. The goal of mental training is to learn how to use the resources that lie within the athletes, so that they are able to perform well at the most important event: the competition.


I also work with artists and singers.

Female empowerment

My own experience in coaching women confirms what data and studies say: Women are still undervalued and their way up in hierarchies is often more difficult than for men.

In my coachings I support women to recognize their abilities and their value, so they can reach their goals and dreams.

My offers:
- Business coaching: For women who want to reach their goals in their job

- Life coaching: For women, wo want to have more self-confidence and reach their goals in the private context


Individual coachings

The goal in individual coachings is to work on topics of your choice – in order to increase your mental strength and support you in performing well. Mental training can help you to deal with important events or support you over a longer period of time.


The aim in workshops is to gain important knowledge about our mind, as well as learning and improving mental skills through practice.


In lectures I speak about your topics of interest, whether that is creating a stress-reduced work environment or ensuring that everyone can use their abilities in their best interests. An important goal of mine is that you can use the information I present, in order to work on your mental skills.
